    Cartridge ID Resources

    Just some stuff I've tripped over in my quest to catalogue cartridges I thought might be useful for others (If there's any interest, I'll add info as I find it).

    The forest spoke with secret sound
    A whispered hush both still and clear
    Communion and peace around
    That those more unfamiliar fear

    Books are good - but cartridge reference books are expensive.

    Get yourself a copy of "Cartridges of the World" as a start , and build from there

    Love the pictures you posted - would make great glossy posters!

    New 16th edition of COTW is out now as well - seems to be some variation in price so you might be able to find someone selling with a promo deal.

    Be aware that COTW is not the collectors Bible. It is an entry-level , general information book with many errors from previous editions , that the editors cant be arsed correcting .

    But as a general , go-to book for easy referance its a fine starting point.
